Commanding Jewel Leads Let’s Elope Stakes Odds 2014

Leon & Troy Corsten’s former Thousand Guineas winner Commanding Jewel is the firming favourite on Saturday to get back into the winners’ stall with a win in the 2014 Let’s Elope Stakes at Flemington Racecourse.

The mares’ only showdown runs as Flemington Race 5 at 2:45pm on the Makybe Diva Stakes Day line-up with 10 hopefuls making up the field for this year’s $200,000 Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m).

Sitting top of the field and markets at is Commands five-year-old Commanding Jewel backed in from $3.20 to $2.50.

She has drawn barrier seven and will be ridden by Damien Oliver on the weekend who is also aboard the market mover Spillway in the $400,000 Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1400m) later on the card.

Winner of the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) as a three-year-old back in 2012, Commanding Jewel also took out last year’s edition of the Let’s Elope Stakes before injury saw her spend the next 12 months on the sidelines.

She returned on August 30 at Caulfield and caught the eye after being blocked for a run but still managing to cross just half a length off the winner Gregers in the Group 3 W.W. Cockram Stakes (1200m).

Saturday sees Commanding Jewel get a chance to turn the tables on her last start conqueror, the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Gregers also backing up in the Let’s Elope Stakes.

She occupies the second line of betting at $3.70 after coming up trumps with barrier three.

Undefeated this time in having also won first-up a fortnight before her Cockram success, four-year-old Gregers is another daughter of Commands and will be ridden by Craig Williams again on the weekend.

She’s the right age at four for a win too with the past eight editions of the Let’s Elope Stakes having been won by four-year-olds.

Seven of those however were second-up, unlike Gregers who has had two runs this time in.

There is then just one other single figure hope in the Let’s Elope Stakes odds with Solicit (barrier two) drawn one inside of Gregers paying $6.

To be ridden by last year’s Cox Plate winning hoop Chad Schofield who returns from a 27-meeting suspension this weekend, unlike her major rivals the Mathew Ellerton & Simon Zahra-trained local is first-up here.

Street Cry mare Solicit, making her four-year-old debut in the Let’s Elope, was last seen running last when ninth behind Diamond Drille in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) on April 19.

She was dropped down in distance off her previous run however when runner-up to Lucia Valentia in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) and with a nice first-up record (3-2-0-0) and being undefeated over the 1400m at Flemington she’s a genuine chance despite not having the edge fitness wise.

The next best in betting outside of those under double figures are then PB Lawrence Stakes third placed Gig ($10) coming off a seventh to Makybe Diva Stakes favourite Dissident in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m), multiple Group 1 performer Dear Demi ($11) out to improve on a fifth first-up in the Cockram and four-year-old Lorna May ($15) with the rails run from barrier one with Dwayne Dunn in the saddle.
